These "ladybugs" were quite admired at church....and they tasted good also. :)
It took quite a bit of my food coloring to make this frosting for the spots dark enough - it is almost black!
We found out that these cannot be made too far in advance since the crackers can get soft.....but they are tasty treats.
These cornflake wreaths are something I remember making when I was a child.....and my kids liked them also.
The donut snowmen were fun - but I had a terrible time finding these little donuts and they were not cheap - so I was determined not to waste ANY of them! That is why the crunched ones have frown-y faces - my kids loved those.
Our watermelon "monster".....
A watermelon bowl w/ watermelon, limes and strawberries.
The cauliflower sheep are fun to look at, but harder to make - I used licorice for the legs and after a while, it can get soft. These didn't last long, though, and were eaten quickly.
The melting snowmen cookies were fun....and the kids at church loved them and so did my children...........
The top plate has "pigs in a blanket" - something we make at least once a year - using little cocktail sausages and homemade crescent roll dough......the bottom blue tray has "wagon wheels" - something my kids love and we make a few times a year - rolled up tortillas w/ cream cheese, meat, cheese, relish.
We have made other fun foods, but I haven't always taken pictures. Ooops - I am trying to remember to do that. Every year, at Christmas time, my kids remind me that we "always" take something fun to the Christmas snack party........so we keep looking for new ideas. The most recent one that I saw and would love to do is the Oreo frog - SO cute, but no picture here since we haven't done it yet. If we do, I may add it.
Many of the ideas are from the internet - some give directions and some do not, so sometimes we "figure it out" for ourselves. We keep planning on about 1 new thing each year - at least, so we keep looking and figuring out new ideas.
